The only difference is the 'eco' part. Hundreds of
years ago everything was 'eco' as Sunray Kelley notes in this
natural building. Only with the advent of industrial processes
that are collectively damaging the environment have we
recognised a need to return to a more natural 'eco' way of life.
Many people still live a low-impact life in small communities all
over the world. They grow their food together, build their homes
together and contribute to the community with their particular
skills providing each other and neighbouring communities with
local goods and services. Making the transition to an ecoVillage
or Intentional Community is no easy task.
To help you connect with opportunities to join established and
developing communities we keep an
List in our Facebook group Talking Natural Homes.

EcoVillage List. Your post
